Testimonials

I can see my calves swarm to the Stress Lic tubs when we put them in. Calves don’t lick ground or gates anymore, and they are healthier.

- Jeff Bremer

We’re confident in what Form-A-Feed brings to our entire operation. We have trust in their Dairy Team, confidence in their ration balancing program, and can utilize the expertise they provide to our Risk Management Team. Form-A-Feed is a real asset to us!

Cattle fill out very nicely before we market them. I’ve used Hydro-Lac for eight years. We feed one pound per head daily for two consecutive days before we market our cattle. After further discussion with my Form-A-Feed representative, I will consider using Hydro-Lac during times of heat stress too.

- Doug Loyson

I have been raising steers for more than 25 years and have always been on the Tend-R-Leen program. It works well for me with the whole shell corn and protein pellet in my set-up. The results are really good. I’m extremely happy with the results.

- Joe Wollak

They actually walk our cattle prior to making recommendations and take the time to discuss them with us. We are able to make necessary […]

In the past we have struggled with some butyric haylage and Form-A-Feed’s Troy Brown pointed us to the right product to help ensure we didn’t have to deal with that again.  He has helped us with our forage program for years and continues to push us to get better as well as coach us along […]

- Tanner Schmidt, Jerseyland LLC

Intakes are improved after calving from what we were doing in our previous program. Fresh pen milk is up and Hydro-Lac is the only thing we are doing that is different.
